Twelve is a very specific number, so there will be more events than the ones I list. However, here are the top 12.
- A plane flies over the Community and frightens Jonas.
- Jonas sees the apple “change,” actually seeing the color red for the first time.
- Jonas is appointed Receiver of Memory in the Ceremony of Twelve.
- Jonas’s father brings Gabe home for extra nurturing.
- Jonas receives the memory of love and stops taking the Stirrings pills.
- Jonas takes a memory of pain from The Giver.
- Jonas pleads with Asher not to play war games, and Asher does not understand. Their friendship is all but gone.
- Gabe is given an extra year of nurturing and is not assigned to a family.
- Jonas sees the video of the Release of the newborn twin.
- Jonas learns that Rosemary asked for Release and injected herself.
- Jonas and The Giver plan Jonas’s escape during the Ceremony of Twelve. The Giver will stay behind to help the Community deal with the memories.
- Jonas and Gabriel escape, and make it to Elsewhere (which possibly means they die).
